Not a Robot but a Ghost

I put a post it note on my mirror right beside my face. ‘You are Enough’. I try to say it out loud as I look at myself. I feel silly. I try not to smirk. I’m smirking. Out of the corner of my eye my mind reworks the words and I see ‘I’ve had Enough’. Heh. Now That I can get behind. What have I had enough of? I’ve resigned myself from my needs for too long. I’ve had enough of tolerating. And what I’ve been tolerating will continue if I allow it. To crack the code. This great resignation, where will it lead if I choose to change?

Nice twist

I love how your affirmation became a Freudian slip that led to a more genuine reflection of how you currently feel. That’s true healing at work.

If you walk the same path you end up in the same place.

I like that quote

In the face of a world constantly telling us what we're missing in life so we can be sold another thing, it's a good reminder to know that we are enough as we are. Doesn't mean we're perfect or that we don't have room to grow. It just means we're good.

Is what I tell myself in the mirror from currently rising self worth based on social and professional positive steps. Less basic self compassion in the mirror, and more what ever the step after step one is. I like your view point. It is positive and healthy.

You are so right. What the Op was using as their affirmation is something I’ve been trying to relearn myself after being in an abusive relationship for a long time. When someone convinces you that nothing about you is okay, it can be really hard to believe in yourself again. I kept going back over and over because I had begun to believe that I was somehow responsible for all of the problems, just like he always said I was. But if I had paid attention to “if you keep walking the same path you wind up in the same place” sooner, I could have saved myself from losing everything. I know I’m not insane, but what I was doing for all those years sure did fit the definition of insanity.

Mirror mirror oops dropped it :)

I don't like what I see in the mirror and I can't change it. But you know what Who Cares it's me and that means something, not sure what !
But it means something !
People judge themselves harsher than anyone else.
Let it go and just be your best self that's my advice.
